African Dance

Cornerstone
(719)389-6637

I was born in the village of Thionk Essyl in the southern Casamance region of Senegal, West Africa.  I grew up there living a traditional Diola life, fishing in the river, growing rice, gathering fruit and wild food in the forest.  Dance is a central part of my culture.  Every major event in the lives of our people is celebrated with dance.  

In early 2010 I began teaching weekly classes at the Casa Verde Common House near downtown Colorado Springs, and I offer monthly dance workshops at the Marmalade studio at the Smokebrush.   I have performed at several events on the Colorado College campus, for the Imagination Celebration and the “What If” festival. 

I love teaching African dance because it allows me to share the beauty of my culture with others.
